Jerry Johnston's contribution to the world of skiing is best exemplified in his total dedication to the development of skiing for the disabled, a process which began in 1963. This was often difficult work requiring the development of techniques and equipment to allow the disabled to ski. His work with the disabled was not confined to Canada alone. Japan approached him in 1970 and he was instrumental in establishing that country's program also.
